Today I woke up to SNOW on the ground, believe it or not! It wasn’t much but it was covering the cars and grass. Today also happens to be 2 of my girlies’ 3rd birthday. Chloe and Sugar joined big sister Bella to make us a 3 dog family. Love it!!

NaBloPoMo #28 Wrapping up
Since it’s the day after Thanksgiving and I have the day off from school, I was hoping to get some extra sleep this morning but still got up around 6:30. I’m getting a bit sleep deprived because I haven’t gotten much all week. Unfortunately, we have commitments both Saturday and Sunday morning so there won’t be any sleeping in for me.
I did more or less take it pretty easy though which was good.. I had to make a run out to look at Luci’s computer then did a couple of CVS runs to finish off my deals for the week and grab them before the 3 day sale ends. I ended up spending just $2.66 out of my pocket for a lot of merchandise because I had Extra Care Bucks from earlier purchases.
They are running an unbelievable number of promotions where the item ends up free when the ECBs print. The trick is to use them on the next purchase (and not let them expire!). It’s even better if you have mfg. coupons because you end up buying it for less than you even get back. It happened on mostly everything that I bought tonight! So, I spent $2.66, got all of that stuff and walked out with $29 to use next time!
I also put away all of my glassware, dishes and serving pieces from yesterday. I needed to wait for all of the dishwasher loads were done so that I could put them away together so they would fit. Tonight, I finally got the Jets tailgate up and posted which I’ve been trying to do for two weeks. But between the holiday and having Sugar added to the mix, her surgery, and my 3 Thanksgiving dinners, it’s been harder to find the time. Once I get into bed, it’s not always possible to type and/or I’m usually beat by the time I get there.
NaBloPoMo #26 2nd Thanksgiving
Great day at school today as we celebrated our second Thanksgiving feast. This time it was with our team. My kids and I made 40 lbs. of mashed potatoes this morning and it worked out perfectly since there was no way that I would have had the room to store them had I made them at home myself last night. Everyone had a great day, pitched in and behaved wonderfully. Days like this make me so thankful and appreciative of my kids and the job that I have.
Sugar had a good day today but we kept her in her crate when we weren’t around to prevent the 3 of them from wrestling and she made out fine. Right now, we’re all tucked in bed and she’s sleeping on my lap and the other two are laying against my legs so the position isn’t the most conducive to typing. I really have to cut it short anyway as I’ve got tons to do in the morning and plan on getting up early to get it all done. I haven’t done a thing yet and my list is quite long. Hope everyone has a great day tomorrow. I’m sure I won’t be on until tomorrow night for #27.
NaBloPoMo #25 Post-Op
Today was the big day for Sugar’s spay surgery and right now I have 3 furry bundles all curled up with me in the bed. She made out fine although she’s slept and been groggy since we’ve gotten home. Bella and Chloe sensed that something was up as they’ve just been sniffing her and giving her kisses. I expect that tonight will be fine as we’re already tucked in but tomorrow and each day after that will be harder to keep them from playing and jumping around. At least when I had the other two done, they were together and both out of it at the same time. They also had those lovely lampshades on which detered the licking. Sugar’s too small so she just has a t-shirt on. I’ll have to keep her in a crate when we can’t supervise them but it won’t be for long.

Yesterday I mentioned that I had something on my mind and today it all came to fruition. My friends who have Bella and Chloe’s parents initially kept one of the puppies from Chloe’s litter. Due to work changes in their lives they felt that they couldn’t give her enough attention so they asked me if I would mind taking her to be with her sisters. Little Miss Sugar came home today and so far so good! She’s so tiny and pretty much stuck close to me today but there was no major issue when I brought her home. Here are some pictures from our first day together.
